    Hi Everyone,

    First of all, I'm new to the forum so Hello! I've been a regular over at Mazda6Club.com but just sold the 6 to buy a Taco and I'm excited to join in on this community.

    I've found the truck that I'd like to buy but I'd just like some input on the lift. I do know that it's a Pro Comp 6" lift, but I don't know what is stock and what has been replaced/upgraded. It does look like the Drive Shaft, Half Shafts, and maybe even the rear differential have been replaced? I've taken several shots and would like to know anything you guys can tell me.

    Thanks!

    Dave

    View to the rear of driver-side leaf spring, is this extension stock or added?

    Pro comp stage 1 right there.



    All the rest of the truck looks OEM to me.

    Thanks guys. So the Dana Driveline parts are stock? How would the Pro Comp 1 affect the life of the transmission or the mpg? Should I be worried at all at 60,000 miles? Should I consider re-gearing if it's on 31-32" tires?

    Thanks for your help.

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    You should be fine with those gears but you might want to go to stage 2 and upgrade those shocks.
